Astros infielder Marwin Gonzalez was examined by a foot specialist on Thursday, according to MLB.com.
Gonzalez left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with a bruised right heel. He was not in Thursday's starting lineup. From MLB.com:
"He came in and was a little tender," Astros manager Brad Mills said. "We took him to get some X-rays and see a doctor. I think it was a little more swollen than we anticipated and that's why we wanted to have a foot doctor check him out."
This season, Gonzalez is hitting .261 with three doubles and one home run.
